An Outdoor Banner Series
out there is a series of banners on the exterior of the Thunder Bay Art Gallery.
Take a drive by the gallery at 1080 Keewatin St and experience images, stories, and moments by new creative voices in northern Ontario.
Each banner is a bold canvas for artists, designers, and makers who experiment with new media, take new paths in artistic careers and claim space beyond traditional art gallery walls.
Be out there.
